High School Credential
We have two options if you want your high school credential: GED and diploma. For the GED track, you must complete all four subtests of the GED test. For the diploma track, you must complete the 24 units required by Union County Schools. Both tracks result in your high school credential, accepted by community colleges and employers. If you aren’t sure which track to pursue, we can help you decide.
For the GED track, you will take classes geared towards the GED subject tests: mathematics, science, social students, and language arts. We will monitor your progress through TABE testing and help you decide when you’re ready to take your GED test.
For the diploma track, we will evaluate your transcript to see which high school units you have remaining. You will complete most of your classwork online using a software program.
While working on your high school credential, you can also earn a career certification. We currently offer dual-enrollment in welding and mechatronics.
As part of your classes, you will improve your employability skills, too. These skills are vital in getting a job or getting a better job.
Students have different reasons for wanting to improve their skills, from needing a refresher before taking a college placement test to wanting to help their children with homework. Whatever your reason, we can help if you need to improve yours. Even if you already have your high school credential or are not interested in pursuing it, you can still work on improving your literacy skills.
Our courses are free.
GED does charge a testing fee – it is $37.50 per subject. We may be able to provide you with a voucher covering the entire testing fee if you are a current student who meets attendance and testing requirements.
To succeed, you must commit to your education. We expect for you to attend class, but we also understand that you have other responsibilities. We offer our classes throughout the day and evening.
If you have a documented disability, you can request accommodations for your classes and TABE testing.
GED must approve accommodations for all GED testing. You can apply for GED accommodations online at any time, but you should allow at least 6 weeks.
Please let us know if something prevents you from coming to class. For many barriers, we can refer you to one of our partners who may be able to help with everything from childcare to transportation.
